    So I’m 17 about to turn of legal age to buy a AR rifle, in 8 months, I’ll still be in school, but 2 months after that I graduate highschool. So probably for you and your family this would be easy, just get the rifles and no problems would arise. But I grew up in a Southern radical leftist family (I’m black) so this is even worse because my mom supports Biden without even hearing him talk not even once. My dad is a centrist leaning conservative so my guns won’t be bad to him, but my mom on the other, hand is well.. difficult. When I told her I was buying a gun to protect us, when I turn 18 (I live with her) she started yelling at me calling me a school shooter and “anyone who owns guns is not receiving blessings from god” and how I’m weird. So I even said I’d leave it in my car, she won’t even let me do that, I could move in with my dad is fine with it, but he can be paranoid, and a bit to deal with sometimes. I didn’t plan on leaving the house this soon but I might have too because the gun situation might be too dire in a year who knows.

    Hope your state doesn’t have red flag laws if she’s already calling you a school shooter.

    I don’t know your situation well enough, but if you can move in with your Dad for, free I would move out. If not just, save your money and live at home for a bit.

    >So I even said I’d leave it in my car, she won’t even let me do that,

    This is good. A car is no place for permanent storage of a firearm.

    >I didn’t plan on leaving the house this soon but I might have too because the gun situation might be too dire in a year who knows.

    As in you believe the political landscape is going to make firearms illegal within the next year or two?

    IMO, suck it up while you live under someone else’s roof. As an adult you have a right to arms, as a home owner she has the right to tell you to pack your shit.

    If staying with her for a couple years post-HS gives you the financial wiggle room to build a savings and get out on your feet with stability then wait on buying a gun. You’re just starting life, building a strong foundation will allow you to fight for your rights more strongly through the rest of your life.

    And he said to them, “When I sent you out with no moneybag or knapsack or sandals, did you lack anything?” They said, “Nothing.” He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one. For I tell you that this Scripture must be fulfilled in me: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors.’ For what is written about me has its fulfillment.” And they said, “Look, Lord, here are two swords.” And he said to them, “It is enough.” (Luke 22:35-38, ESV)

    As much as I disagree with her logic or lack thereof, it’s her house, her rules. Get your own place and do what you want.

    Ignore her and do what you like so long as you’re legal. If she tries to toss out your AR or do something about it hostile to you, get the cops involved on her. (After exhausting trying to talk it out like rational adults first of course.)

    Your Pa is a case of that which he don’t know won’t hurt him. If he finds out anyways, talk to him. In either case, a good conversation is a great starting point for the matter. Just be rational and reasonable and try to keep tempers in check.

    Beyond that, it’s your rights and property, if they don’t like it, they don’t have to, but you’re not legally beholden to follow their rules either. I’d suggest at least looking into getting your own place just in case. (Keeping it in your car can be a risk of theft or getting lost in a car accident.)

    Her house, her rules. Don’t like it, there’s the door.
